Nehme also told her followers that she missed her connecting flight to São Paulo, while she claimed that the airlines refused paying her ticket money back and rather provided an option to pay extra to upgrade the seats to a first class. Reportedly, the Qatar Airways asked her to pay about $3,000 for the upgrade, noting that she had paid $947 on her economy flight.

Meanwhile, reports also quoted the airline while mentioning that the model's family members failed to produce the required Covid-19 PRC test documentation to board the flight.
